43. Churches are renting theatres to circumvent that rating...
And.. they'r encouraging parents to take children as young as 10 to the movie. Sick people.. sick, sick people.

So.. the Bible has lots of other interesting stories.. like people killing children, stoning neighbors to death, sacrificing animals.. if Gibson decides to graphically portray those things too.. will they be running to see that? Violence is violence.. It's freaking me out that people are flocking to this, and defending the dehumanizing violence because they say it's a "true" story. Prove it, folks. Prove it's true... it's a story... and Gibson and his pals are making millions off of the exploitation of the story of Jesus' death. How Christian is that???
